The Truth About Me,
Is a mix of ambient folk, blues and alternative music. Liz Zorn layers in ambient sounding acoustic guitars with up front vocals, and a first person, storytelling style of writing.
Produced by Zorn, this album is full of emotion and raw energy.
Not one to shy away from tough subjects Zorn tackles everything from spousal abuse on "Knife To Bone" to mental illness on the title track"The Truth About Me'
Words like cryptic and reflective come to mind as well, when approaching songs like "On My Way Home" and "Cold Black Night ".
Liz Zorn says what's on her mind, and she does so in a thorough and creative way; Unlike anyone else , her music is unique and engaging, unmistakably Liz.

About Liz
Liz Zorn is a singer, songwriter artist and published poet. she lives in the small village of Morrow Ohio with her husband and their unique family of animal companions.
For many years Liz was known by most as a mixed media artist. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, art centers and universities, in the US and Europe, and is in many private collections around the country.Her bio is listed in both Who's Who In America and Who's Who of American Women.
In late 2001 Liz made the decision to hang up her paint brush for awhile to focus full attention on her music; something that she had not given serious attention to for more than twenty years. Liz has since started her own independent label, Doo Bug Records, and released her first album "The Truth About Me'" which has received positive review, and is currently being played on radio stations both in the US and around the world, as well as garnering generous support from the internet radio community.
An advocate of grass roots music, Liz is active in several regional music organizations, and is an avid supporter of community based independent and americana music.

What folks are saying about The Truth About Me
New Classics - country music
LIZ ZORN - THE TRUTH ABOUT ME CD
This stylish debut album by the painter, multi-media artist and poet Liz Zorn was two years in the making. It's an eclectic mix of folk/blues and adult alternative music that shows the influence of such contemporary songwriters as Lucinda Williams and Patty Griffin.
The highly distinctive sound was achieved by meticulously working in layers of guitar and vocals. Rock and country music are fused with blues and jazz to produce a winning brand of Americana.
Standout tracks include Cold Black Night, the bluesy Giddy Up Baby, Knife to the Bone (a spare and brutally honest response to abuse), and the wonderfully plaintive So Long. Expressive vocals throughout, sometimes shaded with echo and ambient sounds, take the listener on an emotional journey filled with delightful surprises.

EDITORS PICK
Liz Zorn the Truth About Me
Stellar production peppers "The Truth About Me" and gives it a hearty shake, making you just shake your head in amazement at Liz Zorn's skills. Not only did she record the album and write it, but she also sang and played guitar. And in a day and age where Elton John berates madonna over her so-called live performance, this kind of talent and ability is few and far between. Her music is styled after folk and adult alternative with funky effects that light the tunnel for us to see how good she really is.

C-Net
Far from a reverent country-blues acolyte. Liz Zorn puts the tradition through a worldly wringer. Singing with a measure of sensual swing and accompanied by what sounds like a didgeridoo on Giddy Up Baby.

Breaking genre barriers and moving into uncharted waters
Liz Zorn's CD, The Truth About Me is so guilty of breaking genre barriers and moving into heretofore uncharted musical waters that its not desirable to categorize in that way. While pigeonholing isnt possible, it is evident that the music and lyrics are flowing, unrestrained, and possibly even spontaneously created. The warp and weft of the lyrics with the music weave a tapestry that is rich fluent , emotive and extremely listenable , with songs that have a rich texture that one wishes to experience again and again .
Reminscent of folk , jazz, country ,rock AND pop and even beat music ,all the while removing the veil from the inner workings of the human heart and soul ; Liz's music really deserves a category of its own , and The Truth About Me touches the truth about all of us .

Love and HUGS
